Week 1: Day 1:
Started by going to my locally owned supplement and vitamin outlet for some goodies.
– 2 bottles of NOW Candida Support
– 1 bottle of 8 Billion Acidophilus & Bifidus
– I took them all (4 of the Candida Support, 2 of the probiotics) as directed.
I also take a multi-vitamin every morning.
Some of the foods I will NEVER give up in accordance with The Foods to Avoid
– My morning protein shake (Muscle Milk (only 2g sugar)) mixed with whole milk.
– Pork products (esp bacon)
– Basmati Rice
Everything else, I can honestly live without.
Meal 1: 1 serving Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free oatmeal (I know I gotta switch to Oat Bran), 4 slices uncured bacon, 4 eggs fried in the grease, morning protein shake.
Meal 2: Stir fry. Olive oil, 8oz chicken thighs (weighed after fully cooked), broccoli,celery, red bell pepper, habaneros, jalapenos, peanuts, and jicama. Fried in olive oil.
Meal 3: Half of a medium sized jicama eaten raw, 4oz grilled chicken breast with baby carrots, all smothered with Franks Red-Hot (0g sugar in the hot sauce).
Meal 4: 1/4 cup almonds, kale, and 2 servings unflavored greek yoghurt.
Meal 5: Stir-fry left over from brunch but instead of 8oz chicken thigh I used 4oz grilled chicken breast, and put it over 1/2 cup (uncooked) of basmati rice.
Meal 6: At this point I’m absolutely starving and my stomach is growling like mad so I grilled up a NY strip, ate 6oz (weighed after i cooked it), and drank at least 3 servings of whole milk.
Now I’m writing this and getting ready to sleep. I haven’t had any alcohol tonight so I didn’t smoke any cigarettes… Tobacco withdrawal is a joke when you’ve had to rip yourself off opiates, so quitting smoking/drinking wont even be a big deal. The hardest part about all this is cooking so much food all the time and never being able to catch up with the dishes 🙁
